Liner Notes:

Waltz For Debbie introduces to American listening audiences one of the best jazz singers to be heard in some years. Chris McNulty, a native of Australia, is well known in that country, having led groups, toured and done recording work there for most of her career.

Chris possesses a rich, full voice, of which she is in total control. She is a great interpreter of Iyrics and she swings. For her first U.S. recording, she has chosen a stellar, sympathetic group of musicians and an enticing, seductive selection of musical vehicles.

Kenny Washington and George Mraz are (or should be) quite well known. Both areamong the very best at what they do. Pianist Paul McNamara is Australian, and an old friend of Chris's. He has worked with manyvisiting American artists, including Milt Jackson and Joe Henderson. Paul came to New York to do the date with Chris. The great tenor saxophone solo on "The Song Is You" is rising young New York Tenor Jed Levy.

All in all, Waltz For Debbie is a brilliant recording,and an impressive debut of a voice from which much more will be heard.
